Here, for a change, is a fish tale that actually does honor to the author. The Old Man & the Sea revived Hemingway's career, which was foundering under the weight of such postwar stinkers as Across the River & into the Trees. It also led directly to his receipt of the 1954 Nobel Prize--an award he gladly accepted, despite his earlier observation that "no son of a bitch that ever won the Nobel Prize ever wrote anything worth reading afterwards"
A great read
The Old Man and The Sea
Hemingways research and knowledge surrounding this subject is astonishing.
The Old man and the sea next years movie.
What a glorious struggle. I hope they make this into a film one day. I loved this. First Hemingway and I’m hooked like a Marlin
